If You Have a Wide Waist...
Strategic color-blocking shapes your figure while the modest style keeps you covered—ideal for playing with the kids at the beach ($75, LL Bean)

Keep in Mind:
  • A demi-cup bra builds cleavage, and details at the bust capture the eye—no scrutiny on your bottom half!
  • Belted styles create a shapelier profile.
  • High-cut legs make you longer and leaner.
  • Slimming patterns (such as diagonals) make less of your middle.
  • To give the illusion of a smaller waist, choose a suit with a deeply V-necked halter and vertical bands of color.
